Date of Defense 2003-06-01 Availability unrestricted AbstractScales, etudes, performance repertoire and orchestral excerpts are the basic
teaching materials for the cello student. In addition to scales and arpeggios, etudes
provide both the basic facility and the technical foundation for the studentís development.
Etudes offer a concentrated study of one or more technical aspects in a short musical
form. Depending upon when and whom written, etudes differ both in style and technical
demands. Cello students entering colleges or universities are initially at different playing
levels and although they may require different study materials, there are some common
cello etude books that may apply to the majority.
The purpose of this treatise is to serve as a reference source for common cello
etudes used by teachers in American colleges and universities. This study provides an
orientation to pedagogical materials currently in use, and it analyzes the criteria and
rationale behind them. The research for this treatise utilizes surveys sent to college cello
teachers from the list provided by the American String Teachers Association. All
responses in the survey were coded to be analyzed in the Statistical Package for the
Social Sciences using the Frequencies and Crosstabulations subprograms. A total of
thirty-three completed surveys were received. Primary questions were the most widely
used cello etude books in American colleges and the criteria used by teachers in selecting
cello etude books for their students.
